The Orbiter is an exploration ship but planned to operate with a capital ship within a range of 5000 km from its machine reconstruction, in a planet or moon orbit.
It is based on instrument flight and makes it easy to carry out complicated routes. It was designed and used to be a complement to the usual explorer and nav chip buy and sell systems.
From a point at the level of a belt, it can move along this belt for a given distance or a given angle of orbit, inside (between the planet or the moon and the belt) as outside (after the belt). As well as navigation in a belt, in particular to make jump points in areas.
It is designed in a very symmetrical way to ensure excellent weight distribution and the most perfect precision possible. That's why he has 2 dataloggers when just 1 would have been enough. But during an unmarked trip over a distance of 5000km, the slightest shift can prove fatal (exceeding the distance and arriving in the belt, etc.).
Its capacity is 7000 - 8000 km outside a belt and 6000 - 7000 km inside a belt (significant use of maneuvering thrusters).
It is small, agile and responsive compared to interplanetary explorers. Its operation is based on the center of the orbit (center of the planet / moon), and from there all modes of operation are open. It uses trigonometry and 3D trigonometry to ensure the accuracy of its operation.
During a lap of EOS, it proved to be particularly accurate with over distances of 4500km, an error of around 10km.
Its relative distance calculation with respect to the trajectory axis is particularly useful for finding an area in a belt. You point the planet, you fly over the belt until you reach the desired distance by following the belt (which represents a torus). Once the distance is reached, simply position yourself at 90° and calibrate the gyro then descend into the belt for the desired distance. Generally dodging asteroids, ... will cause you to deviate from your trajectory and make the search difficult for you. With the relative distance, you will have information on the distance traveled compared to your initial trajectory in real time. Searching for the area is therefore much simpler.
As you will have understood, this ship is a complement to what is currently being done in terms of exploring. His goal is to travel a maximum of 5000km to make a navigation disk, to use his machine reconstruction of his capital ship and to move him to find your Orbiter. Although it was designed to be as accurate as possible, the precision of the reference points is essential.
In this sense, a calibration "Grid" system is present on the ship in order to facilitate the alignment and accuracy of the reference point of the center of a planet or moon. The grid is only used initially to calibrate the gyroscope.
Distance and trajectory calculation modules should soon see the light of day to allow those who wish, to add this to an existing ship (or being created).
